*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Seeking a better life for her unique son, Juan, Mercedes crosses the border illegally. When the zero tolerance policy separates her and Juan, she is determined to be reuinted with him.
Afer the disgusting events at the border, I was waiting for the stories that would come of it; both fictionalized and true. This book is timely, but there are some on the nose references (remember BBQ Karen? Yeah, she’s here). This is like “Black” but I fell this one has a better flow. I like where this is going even if the bad guy characters are overtly drawn as bad guys. The art could have been more subtle here to show that people don’t have to look “bad” to be bad. 4 out of 5.
